Tour guides worldwide need Emergency Funding TODAY.
Many do not have employment insurance or access to government stimulus packages. They have no Plan B.
Many guides have not worked during the winter, and are now facing losing an entire year’s salary. Some are finding it difficult to feed their children.
Watch the video and ADOPT AN AMAZING TOUR GUIDE TODAY.
Do you have a specific tour guide in mind that you’d like to help? A colleague, a friend, an amazing guide? You can help that person directly.
Email our team member non-profit specialist, Gina Pillsbury – [email redacted]. She will note suggestions / instructions for where you'd like your donation to make the greatest impact.
We are currently reaching out to our tour guide community around the world to see which guides are unable to pay even for basic living. We will allocate general donations based on those immediate, emergency needs.
TRANSPARENCY AND TRUST
Our promise is to keep you updated on how much has been raised, exactly how the funds have been used, and how your donation has made a life-changing impact.
Our goal is to save, support and adopt tour guides, tour directors, and tour managers around the world in this difficult time.
WHEN WILL TOURISM BOUNCE BACK?
The million dollar question. Nobody knows. What we DO know is that this situation is NOT permanent. Our tour operator network tells us that guests are postponing tours, NOT cancelling.
So let’s make sure that amazing tour guides are still here when tourism comes back. They are too valuable to lose to other industries in this crisis.
Please help support our valuable community of guides if you can. And please share this campaign so that we can support more tour guides.
